Doing intimate scenes with Tom Hanks was surreal, says Emily BluntJanuary 19th, 2008 - 3:21 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Jan 19 (ANI): English actress Emily Blunt has admitted that she felt embarrassed doing intimate scenes with Tom Hanks in Charlie Wilson’s War.
The actress had to bare all in front of the Hollywood superstar, and found it very awkward, because Hanks was old enough to be her father.
Hanks plays the role of womanising U.S. congressman Charlie Wilson, and Blunt, who starred in the Devil Wears Prada, plays one of his love interests.
“It was surreal! And embarrassing, always, because it’s just you with your tits hanging out, and you have to hope that the lighting’s nice, Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
However, Blunt confessed that Hanks charm helped her feel more at ease once the cameras started rolling.
“But (Hanks) is such a gentleman. Maybe it was weird for him too, because… I could be his daughter. And I’m friends with his son - I did Buck Howard with Colin (Hanks’ first child with late producer Samantha Lewes), she said.
“And also because Tom Hanks is not known for these kind of scenes, for being that kind of guy - and Charlie Wilson was a massive player, he was really promiscuous.
Tom was so really good at that. He’s really sexy! I promise you. He just made it effortless, to do those scenes. And he was very protective of me. And he’s a gent,” she added. (ANI)
